Software and Science

A blog on Metabolomics, Algorithms, and Software Development.

Metabolomics is a rather young life sciences discipline, although its origins go back to more than a century of research in biology and biochemistry.

Studying the Metabolome

Metabolomics is all about metabolites, which are the entirety of small molecules that are digested, secreted, excreted, inhaled and exhaled. They build the foundation of every living organism on earth. They deliver the parts necessary to build nucleotides that make up your DNA, peptides, that make up your proteins, fat that keeps you warm, sugars that make you run, and much much more.
